Creation date: February 1, 2018

INEA has received 204 project proposals by the deadline for 9 topics under the Mobility for Growth call. The total indicative budget is €155 million.

Successful projects are expected to demonstrate innovative solutions towards low-carbon and sustainable transport, as well as contribute significantly to transport safety, and to the development of advanced technological capabilities in transport. In total, nine topics were open for application for this stage of the call (see table below).

The proposals will now be evaluated in a two-stage selection process. The initial evaluation will start on 19 February 2018. The applicants will be informed if their proposal was successful by 30 April 2018 at the latest. If so, they will be invited to submit a full project proposal by 19 September 2018.

The selection of projects will be done by external independent experts. These evaluators are drawn from the European Commission's database.

The Commission is looking to expand the database through a call for experts covering a very broad range of fields. If you fit the profile and would like to be considered for evaluations, please sign up in the Participant Portal.
